Orphan Black releases first look photos, new details from final season
There are still a few months to go before Orphan Black returns for its fifth and final season, but Clone Club members are now getting a new glimpse at what’s in store for Sarah and her sestras.
BBC America released 10 new images from the series on Wednesday, along with new plot details warning that “walls are closing in” on Sarah when nearly all her sister clones and their allies are “brought to heel” by Rachel — and what makes it even more harrowing is that Sarah’s daughter, Kira, is among them.
“With the threat of Neolution having carte blanche access to clone biology, Sarah is desperate to gain control, but realizes she must change tactics to pursue a long game,” the plot description from the network continues. “Protecting both her families, and the host of clones she’s yet to meet, Sarah and those still fighting the fight will uncover the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy – and finally learn the story behind their origin. Despite the great risk, the fight of her life will either set her and her sestras free, or see them meet their end…”
The photos below offer even more for fans to chew on. Cosima is with Delphine (Evelyne Brochu) in one, seemingly examining her torso for something. Alison looks like she’s back on stage (or perhaps behind a curtain of some sort) alongside Felix (Jordan Gavaris) and Donnie (Kristian Bruun). Rachel and Ira (Ari Millen) are together in another of the images, and Ferdinand (James Frain) is still lurking around, too.
But among all those usual faces (and Maslany’s many times over, as multiple clones — hi, Helena!), it looks like there’s a new one, too — who’s that woman meeting with Scott (Josh Vokey), Art (Kevin Hanchard), and Krystal?
The Orphan Black crew will appear Thursday at a PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles, and new episodes of the show return June 10 at 10 p.m. ET on BBC America.
